    Tuesday's Tip Sheet
    March 13, 2018


    Game of the Night: Nuggets (-2, 230 ˝) at Lakers – 10:35 PM EST

    The Lakers (30-36 SU, 36-30 ATS) continue to defend their home court as Los Angeles improved to 11-1 SU and 10-2 ATS since January 7 at Staples Center following Sunday’s 127-113 blowout of Cleveland. Julius Randle put together a career game against the Cavaliers by scoring 36 points and pulling down 14 rebounds, while Isaiah Thomas burned his former team for 20 points off the bench. The Lakers still have plenty of work to do if they want to make the playoffs as they sit 6 ˝ games back of the eighth spot in the Western Conference.

    Four teams are fighting it out for the final two positions in the Western playoff race as the Clippers, Jazz, Nuggets, and Spurs are the teams that are trying to draw either Golden State or Houston in the opening round. Denver (37-30 SU, 31-33-3 ATS) has struggled on the road this season by owning an 11-20 record away from the Pepsi Center, but has won three of its last four on the highway. The Nuggets are fresh off a 130-104 blowout of the Kings on Sunday as 11 ˝-point home favorites, as Denver shot 56% from the floor, while center Nikola Jokic posted a triple-double by scoring 20 points, pulling down 10 rebounds, and dishing out 10 assists.

    The home team has won all three matchups this season, as the Nuggets knocked off the Lakers last Friday, 125-116 as seven-point favorites. Los Angeles led by two points heading into the fourth quarter until Denver pulled away by outscoring the Lakers, 31-20 to pick up the home cover. Three Nuggets scored at least 21 points, led by Jamal Murray’s 22, as Denver knocked down 26-of-30 free throws in the win.

    Not on Target

    The race for first place in the Northwest division is a good one with Portland currently leading the way. All five squads have a chance to make the playoffs, while the team in the middle is Minnesota (39-29 SU, 31-35-2 ATS), who is primed for its first postseason appearance since 2004. The Wolves travel to Washington looking to improve on a dreadful 2-13 SU and 3-12 ATS road mark in 2018, including recent divisional setbacks at Utah and Portland.

    Minnesota is coming off a solid 109-103 home victory over Golden State on Sunday afternoon as 3 ˝-point underdogs to snap a three-game skid. The Wolves look to avenge a 92-89 setback to the Wizards from late November at the Target Center, as Minnesota owns a 2-10 record against Eastern Conference teams on the road. Washington (38-29 SU, 32-34-1 ATS) looks to bounce back from a 27-point loss at Miami on Saturday, while losing four of its past six games at Capital One Arena.

    Pacing Up

    Due to Cleveland’s recent struggles, Indiana (39-28 SU, 38-29 ATS) has taken advantage by grabbing first place in the Central division by a half-game heading into Tuesday’s action. The Pacers rallied past the Celtics on Sunday, 99-97 as 4 ˝-point road underdogs, improving to 5-1 SU/ATS in the last six games. Indiana has tightened up its defense in this stretch by allowing less than 100 points five times, while cashing the UNDER in seven consecutive games overall.

    The 76ers (36-29 SU, 36-27-2 ATS) return home from a 2-2 road trip, capped off by Sunday’s 120-97 blowout of the Nets as 5 ˝-point favorites. Philadelphia has yet to lose at Wells Fargo Center in 2018 by posting a perfect 13-0 record, while amazingly covering 12 times in this span. The Sixers and Pacers have split a pair of matchups this season as Indiana won at home in early February, 100-92.

    Sweet Sounds

    One of the most incredible runs this season in the NBA has been produced by the Jazz (37-30 SU, 36-31 ATS), who own a remarkable 18-2 record the last 20 games. The biggest of this winning stretch came in an overtime victory at Detroit on January 24, as the Jazz host the Pistons tonight. Utah swept a three-game road swing over the weekend by rolling past New Orleans, 116-99 as 1 ˝-point favorites.

    The Jazz return to Salt Lake City to start a four-game homestand against four teams all sitting below the .500 mark. The Pistons (30-36 SU, 29-335-2 ATS) embark on a six-game road swing against Western Conference foes, starting with Utah, Denver, and Portland over the next five nights. Detroit is on 3-10 run since a five-game winning streak, coming off Friday’s 99-83 rout of Chicago as 7 ˝-point favorites. The Pistons have struggled on the road of late by dropping nine straight away from Little Caesars Arena, while covering once in this stretch.

    Grounded Pelicans

    New Orleans (38-28 SU, 35-30-1 ATS) pulled off 10 consecutive victories heading into last Friday’s contest against Washington. Anthony Davis sat out due to injury and the Pelicans’ hot streak came to a screeching halt in a 116-97 home setback to the Wizards. Two nights later, New Orleans fell to Utah by 17 points as the Pelicans look to end their sudden losing streak against the Hornets.

    Charlotte (29-38 SU, 27-36-4 ATS) snapped a five-game skid by holding off Phoenix on Saturday, 122-115, but failed to cash as 13-point favorites. Charlotte has slumped from an ATS standpoint of late by covering only once in the last six games, while losing at Boston, Philadelphia, and Toronto in this span. The Hornets have lost three straight meetings with the Pelicans since the start of last season, including a 101-96 home setback in late January.

    Setting Suns

    Phoenix (19-49 SU, 31-35-2 ATS) is back home for one game following an 0-4 road trip that included losses to Atlanta, Miami, Oklahoma City, and Charlotte. The Suns made a late run to cover as 13-point underdogs at Charlotte on Saturday, but Phoenix has put together an 0-8 ATS record in its last eight games off a cover. Phoenix is currently on a 1-15 run with the only victory coming at Memphis in late February, a Grizzlies’ team that has lost 18 straight games.

    The Suns welcome in the Cavaliers (38-29 SU, 21-44-1 ATS), who are coming off consecutive losses in Los Angeles to the Clippers and Lakers. As a road favorite, Cleveland has compiled an embarrassing 2-13 ATS mark in their last 15 opportunities, including outright losses at Orlando, Sacramento, and Detroit. The Cavaliers have captured the last five matchups with the Suns since 2015, but have failed to cash in their past two road victories at Phoenix as a favorite.

    Dinero Tracker - Mar. 13
    March 13, 2018

    Read the Dinero Tracker's mission statement here


    Last night's ATS Records
    NBA: 3-3 | NCAA BB: 3-2
    I had plays on every CollegeInsider Tournament contest and already caught a tough loss you can credit March madness for. The college lock came in and both CIT totals hit, but the NBA guarantee came up short. Here is Monday's recap, complete with some of the highlights (and lowlights):

    TUESDAY'S FREE SELECTION

    The pick: Jazz -8

    I hope Stan Van Gundy gets a crack at coaching the team he's helped put together when the Pistons shake up their current structure this offseason, but right now, it's unfair to expect much out of his team. Reggie Bullock joins Stanley Johnson in being hampered by back issues, so an already thin wing rotation is hurting. Reggie Jackson is close to returning, but his continued absence means Ish Smith, Jameer Nelson and Dwight Buycks continue in his place. Watching Brandon Jennings go off last night in his NBA return with the Bucks probably didn't sit too well with Detroit fans. Look for the Jazz to roll to a seventh straight win here. They've won the last four by double-digits and will do so again. Ride Utah and lay the points.

    MONDAY'S FREE SELECTION

    The pick: Bucks -7.5

    Slowly but surely, Jabari Parker is working the rust off his game and becoming a factor as new head coach Joe Prunty gets to work on experimenting with putting his best lineups out there. The Bucks have been terrible against the spread of late, covering just one of their last eight games in a 2-9 run since Feb. 13, but have won and covered in their last three games as a road favorite and should control a game against a Grizzlies team that is been held 280 or fewer points and their last two contests. Ride Milwaukee.

    Result: Milwaukee hooked up the freebie fans with a stress-free 121-103 rout in Memphis. It's on you if there were nervous mements when the Grizzlies closed within six with 6:30 to go, but you shouldn't be so skittish. The Bucks outscored Memphis 24-12 from that point to win 121-103. Brandon Jennings returned to the NBA with 16 points, eight boards and 12 assists in under 24 minutes of action. Anyone offering odds on him getting a second 10-day contract?

    MONDAY'S LOCK

    The pick: San Diego -9.5

    Although USD head coach Lamont Smith resigned due to a sexual assault investigation, he ultimately wasn't charged. It sounds like the school is moving on, but his acquittal should make it easier for players to turn the page and this tournament offers a nice opportunity. The Torerors were fantastic at the Jenny Craig Pavilion this season and get a Hartford squad with limited depth that had to fly cross-country for this CIT opener. If John Carroll or J.R. Lynch get into foul trouble, this will get ugly. Ride San Diego -9.5, guaranteed.

    Result: Hartford showed up ready to play, which kept the Toreros sharp early and allowed them to find a rhythm they sustained throughout despite top scorer Isaiah Pineiro landing in foul trouble. Six scored in double-figures as San Diego won 88-72.

    LOCK THAT DIDN'T CLICK

    The pick: Spurs/Rockets OVER 209.5

    The Spurs will be relying on a team-based approach to offense without LaMarcus Aldridge in the mix, so Rudy Gay will likely have to be aggressive and isn't at 100% to trust in that role yet. With Manu Ginobili resting and Kawhi Leonard not debuting until later in the week, the Spurs are extremely vulnerable heading into Houston, where a fan base that hasn't seen its team in a while is set to pack the house for a rivalry game. With James Harden back, the Rockets are going to find easy offense and proved in Dallas that this road trip hasn't done anything to cool off their strokes or tire their legs. The Spurs are going to have to score to hang around, which means they can't slow the game down to have any shot. Ride the over, guaranteed.

    Result: I wound up splitting here since the Rockets covered, but the Spurs getting so bogged down early doomed this play. Houston held San Antonio to 67 points through three quarters and 40.7 percent shooting for the evening.

    BAD BEAT BULLETIN

    The pick: Drake -8.5

    Abilene Christian found out that it would make its postseason debut a few days ago since they didn't qualify for even the Southland Tourney. The Wildcats are extremely limited in terms of depth, so they can't afford Jalone Friday or Jaren Lewis landing in foul trouble. Keeping both out against a team that can attack proficiently is unlikely, so expect Reed Timmer to be able to close out a double-digit win down the stretch, keeping Abilene Christian from hanging around. Ride Drake -8.5.

    Result: Friday did land in foul trouble and the Bulldogs pulled away in the second half, reaching the 2:00 mark up by 10 after a Nick McGlynn layup. Abilene Christian than forced OT with a 10-0 run highlighted by sloppy Drake turnovers. Drake won in OT, but it finished 80-73.


    TOTAL RECALL

    The pick: Liberty/North Carolina A&T UNDER 141

    This is an awfully high total for a Ritchie McKay-coached team, especially given the fact that unlike many MEAC teams, the Aggies don't prefer to run at all costs. They have bigs who can at least make their presence felt down low, so unless we get a bad whistle, I don't see these teams combining to reach this total. Ride the under in this CIT contest.

    Result: This wasn't in doubt after the opening tip-off, and at one point, I think the Flames caught fire -- sorry -- and hit seven straight shots. Liberty won 65-52.

    UPSET CITY

    The pick: IPFW -5

    The Mastodons have a huge edge here, getting to roll out of bed ready to play this morning in their home gym against a team that is going to run with them. On TV, too. Look for a wide open game in this CIT opener, which you can watch on CBS College Sports Network. Ride IPFW and the over for the in-game parlay.

    Result: Central Michigan pulled off the first upset of the week, claiming the first postseason tourney game 94-89 in Fort Wayne. The Mastodons had their chances to take control, but missed too many wide open 3-point looks they typically make.

    SWING AND A MISS

    The pick: Heat +7

    The Heat know they have to push tempo to stay engaged in Portland given how well Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum are playing, so look for the faster pace that prevailed against Washington to be in play here, especially with Hassan Whiteside and Dwyane Wade, both ball-stoppers, sidelined here. The Heat should hang around. Take the points with Miami and ride the over for the in-game parlay.

    Result: Miami made a late run, but was largely overwhelmed by Portland's Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic in a 115-99 loss. Those two combined for 59 points to lead the Trail Blazers to their league-best 10th consecutive win.

    Armadillo: Wednesday's six-pack

    Some prop bets for the NCAA tournament; wins by conference:

    — ACC— 14 wins

    — Big East— 8.5 wins

    — Big X— 8.5 wins

    — #1 seeds— 11.5 wins

    — #2 seeds— 10.5 wins

    — #3 seeds— 8 wins


    **********

    Armadillo: Wednesday's List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    13) Minnesota Vikings made their decision; they give Kirk Cousins $84M for three years, all fully guaranteed, to be their QB. Cousins has a 26-30-1 career W-L record, 0-1 in playoffs.

    12) Minnesota went 11-3 with Case Keenum at QB LY; Keenum signed with the Broncos on Monday; he threw for 3,547 yards and 22 TD’s last season.

    11) Drew Brees re-signed with the Saints; he turned down $60M guaranteed from someone else (Cardinals? Vikings?) before deciding to stay in New Orleans.

    10) Cardinals gave oft-injured QB Sam Bradford $20 ($15M guaranteed) for one year. As a long-time Ram fan, I endorse the Keenum signing; the Bradford signing? Not so much.

    9) Jets signed Teddy Bridgewater and re-signed Josh McCown, meaning they probably ain’t drafting another quarterback next month.

    8) Gonzaga lost the national title game 71-65 last April, ending an odd run to the Final Four- they were 1-4-1 vs spread in their NCAA tournament games last spring.

    7) Florida made the Elite 8 in each of its last five NCAA tournaments- hard to do that.

    6) Since 2010, Villanova is 5-2 in its first-round games, 1-4 in second round games; the one time they won in second round, they won national title two years ago.

    5) Arkansas is probably glad just to be in a different region than North Carolina this year; last three times the Razorbacks made the NCAA’s, they lost to the Tar Heels in the second round. If they play UNC in this year’s tournament, it’ll be in the Final Four.

    4) Why gambling on NIT/CBI/CIT games can be dicey; USC star Chimezie Metu sat out Trojans’ NIT game Tuesday, for no reason except he didn’t want to get hurt. Not sure that Metu will get picked in the first round of the NBA Draft— he is a junior, so if he got hurt, he could come back to school next year, but it is a free country, and he chose not to play.

    Late night update: With Metu sitting on bench, NC-Asheville played its heart out but fell short, losing 103-98 in double OT at USC- they led by six points in overtime.

    3) Virginia loses its best guy off the bench, DeAndre Hunter for the season with a broken wrist.

    2) Radford 71, LIU 61— Radford advances to play Villanova Thursday; no 16-seed has ever beaten a #1-seed. Last nine years, #16-seeds who won the play-in game are 7-11 vs spread in their next game, against a #1-seed.

    1— St Bonaventure 65, UCLA 58— Season that started with shoplifting in China ended with an ugly loss on a Tuesday night in Dayton. Bruins turned ball over 20 times (-14), shot 10-30 on arc. Bonnies’ Stocker was doubtful to play, then played all 40:00, scored 26 points- they won despite star Adams going 2-16 from the floor.

    Wednesday's Tip Sheet
    March 14, 2018


    Game of the Night: Wizards (-3, 204 ˝) at Celtics – 8:00 PM EST

    These two Eastern Conference squads played seven games in their second round playoff series last season with the home team winning each time. So of course the first two meetings this season have seen the road squad capturing victory in each instance. The Wizards (38-30 SU, 32-35-1 ATS) knocked off the Celtics on Christmas day, 111-103 as four-point underdogs at TD Garden, but Boston downed Washington in overtime in D.C. on February 8 by a 110-104 count as two-point favorites.

    The Celtics (46-21 SU, 40-25-2 ATS) are the walking wounded currently as forward Marcus Smart is sidelined with a right thumb injury, while leading scorer Kyrie Irving will miss tonight’s contest with a sore left knee. On top of those injuries, forward Al Horford is questionable with an illness, as the Celtics try to rebound from a 99-97 home setback to the Pacers on Sunday as 4 ˝-point favorites.

    Washington travels to Beantown following a 116-111 home loss to Minnesota on Tuesday after blowing an eight-point lead going into the final quarter. Markieff Morris led the Wizards with 27 points, but Washington was outscored, 34-21 in the last 12 minutes of the game to drop to 2-9-1 ATS in the past 12 opportunities as a home favorite. The Wizards own a mediocre mark when playing with no rest at 5-6 SU/ATS, including a 2-3 SU and 3-2 ATS mark on the road in this role.

    Lake Night in Oakland

    The Lakers (31-36 SU, 37-30 ATS) began the season at 11-27, but the Purple and Gold has rolled to a 20-9 record the past 29 games. The latest victory came against the Nuggets on Tuesday, 112-103 as two-point underdogs to improve to 12-1 in the previous 13 contests at Staples Center. Both Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle posted exact 26-point and 13-rebound stat lines for Los Angeles, while knocking down 15 three-pointers.

    Los Angeles travels up I-5 to face Golden State (51-16 SU, 28-38-1 ATS), who will be without several of its stars. Stephen Curry remains sidelined with an ankle injury suffered last week against San Antonio, while Draymond Green will sit with right shoulder soreness. The Warriors return home following a pair of road defeats at Portland and Minnesota, while Steve Kerr’s squad has failed to cover the number in six straight games.

    The Lakers have cashed in all three matchups with the Warriors this season, including taking two of those games to overtime at Staples Center. In the most recent meeting at Oracle Arena in late December, the Warriors held off the Lakers, 113-106, but L.A. took home the money as 11 ˝-point underdogs. All three games have sailed OVER the total, but the Warriors are currently on a 5-1 UNDER run.

    Cold Road

    The Heat (36-32 SU, 34-29-5 ATS) have received a boost since acquiring former franchise star Dwyane Wade by winning seven of eight home games. However, Miami has struggled on the highway by losing all five road games since Wade returned, while the Heat have dropped eight consecutive contests away from American Airlines Arena. The most recent setback came at Portland on Monday, 115-99 as six-point underdogs, while Wade and Hassan Whiteside each sat out due to injury.

    Both players will sit again tonight as the Heat visit Sacramento (21-47 SU, 31-34-3 ATS), who posted a 3-2 record on its most recent homestand. The Kings are fresh off a pair of road losses at Denver and Oklahoma City, but managed a cover as 13 ˝-point underdogs in Monday’s 106-101 defeat to the Thunder. Sacramento shocked Miami on January 25 as 9 ˝-point ‘dogs, 89-88, ending a six-game losing streak to the Heat dating back to 2015.

    Out of Tricks


    A brutal season for Orlando (20-48 SU, 32-35-1 ATS) hit a low point on Tuesday in a 108-72 setback at San Antonio as 10 ˝-point underdogs. The Magic lost all five games on their road swing, while dropping eight consecutive contests away from central Florida since mid-February. Orlando has won two straight at home as the Magic try to extend that streak as the Bucks invade Amway Center.

    Milwaukee (36-31 SU, 27-35-5 ATS) is riding a two-game hot streak following a 1-6 stretch as the Bucks blew out the hapless Grizzlies on Monday, 121-103. Since the start of February, the Bucks own a dreadful 6-12 ATS record, including a 3-7 ATS ledger as a favorite. Milwaukee has captured the first two matchups with Orlando this season, including a 111-104 road victory as five-point favorites on February 10.

    Warriors beat Lakers 117-106 despite missing 3 All-Stars
    March 15, 2018


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Kevin Durant scored 26 points and the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Los Angeles Lakers 117-106 on Wednesday night while missing Stephen Curry on his 30th birthday and their two other All-Stars.

    Zaza Pachulia returned to the starting lineup for the first time since the All-Star break and had 10 points, 12 rebounds and five assists for the banged-up defending champions, who already had clinched a sixth straight playoff berth this week without playing.

    Coach Steve Kerr's non-traditional, late-season starting lineup of Durant, Quinn Cook, Nick Young, Kevon Looney and Pachulia worked as the Warriors won their eighth straight home game.

    Julius Randle had 22 points and 10 rebounds before fouling out late as the Lakers were without starting forward Kyle Kuzma because of a sprained right ankle. Los Angeles had won two straight and three of four. Isaiah Thomas added 20 points with five 3-poitners and seven assists, while Lonzo Ball dished out 11 assists.

    WIZARDS 125, CELTICS 124, 2 OT

    BOSTON (AP) - Bradley Beal scored 34 points, including a three-point play with 1:25 left in the second overtime, and Washington beat short-handed Boston.

    Jayson Tatum missed a 3-pointer just before the buzzer that could have won it for the Celtics, who were without six players and missed several opportunities to put away the Wizards.

    Otto Porter Jr. finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Markieff Morris scored 20 points, Ian Mahinmi added 14 and Tomas Satoransky had 10 points for Washington, which played the night before but still had enough energy at the end to rally past the weary Celtics, who blew a 20-point lead.

    Boston patched together a lineup without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) and center Al Horford (illness), two of the four regulars who were sidelined.

    Marcus Morris led Boston with 31 points and pulled down 19 rebounds, but made a costly defensive error in the closing seconds of regulation. Terry Rozier added 21 points and nine assists, and Tatum scored 19 points for the Celtics.

    MAGIC 126, BUCKS 117

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Jonathon Simmons scored a career-high 35 points, D.J. Augustin added 32 and Orlando bounced back from an embarrassing defeat to beat Milwaukee.

    Simmons was 7 of 12 from 3-point range and Augustin hit 6 of 9, three of them in the fourth quarter to help Orlando pull away.

    Nikola Vucevic had 22 points, nine rebounds and nine assists for the Magic, who were routed 108-72 Tuesday night in San Antonio, their fifth straight loss.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 38 points for Milwaukee, which has lost seven of 10.

    KINGS 123, HEAT 119, OT

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - De'Aaron Fox made a layup at the buzzer to force overtime, Zach Randolph scored the first three points of the extra period and finished with 22, and Sacramento recovered after blowing a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter to beat Miami.

    Randolph added a key block on Justise Winslow with 1:19 remaining in OT as Sacramento swept Miami for the first time since 2001-02.

    That overshadowed an impressive night by Miami's Goran Dragic, who scored 11 straight points in the fourth quarter to fuel the Heat's comeback and matched his season high of 33 points. But Dragic missed a tying turnaround jumper with 20 seconds left in overtime, then stepped out of bounds with the ball with 12.3 remaining.

    Randolph had the first three points in overtime with a free throw and 17-foot jumper. Fox made a short runner, Bogdan Bogdanovic hit a 28-foot 3-pointer and Buddy Hield added four free throws.

    Armadillo: Thursday's six-pack

    Some prop bets for the NCAA tournament; wins by team: (Westgate SuperBook)

    — wins for Villanova, 3.5 (under -$120)

    — wins for Duke, 3 (under -$130)

    — wins for Michigan State, 2.5 (under -$135)

    — wins for Virginia, 4 (under -$140)

    — wins for North Carolina 2.5 (under -$140)

    — wins for Michigan 2 (under -$130


    **********

    Armadillo: Thursday's List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud……

    13) USC star Chimezie Metu sat out the Trojans’ NIT game Tuesday, because he doesn’t want to get hurt before the NBA Draft, which is in late June. This ignited a heated Twitter debate.

    I’ll say this: Metu has the right to do as he pleases, it is a free country. But…….

    In 2000, Kenyon Martin was the star of a Cincinnati team that was going to be a #1-seed in the NCAA’s, but in the first round of the C-USA tournament, he broke his leg and also injured knee ligaments, the kind of disastrous injury that Metu obviously fears now.

    Long story short: Martin was still picked 1st in the NBA Draft that year; he played 15 years in the NBA, scored over 9,200 points and earned $113M in his career.

    My opinion is that you should finish what you start, but thats just my opinion.

    12) Klay Thompson has apparently broken his right thumb, will miss at least four games; he hasn’t missed more than five games in a season since he became a full-time starter.

    11) Stupid new baseball rule: In minor league baseball this year, all extra innings will start with a runner on second base. I’m beginning to think the people who run baseball don’t like baseball.

    10) Patrick Beilein is the 34-year old coach at LeMoyne, a D-II school in Syracuse; he is the son of Michigan coach John Beilein. It has been rumored that Patrick Beilein has already gotten three job offers from D-I schools this spring.

    9) Ole Miss is going to hire Middle Tennessee State coach Kermit Davis, whose dad used to be the coach at Mississippi State. Rough couple weeks for the Blue Raiders, who got screwed out of an NCAA tournament bid and now are losing their coach of the last 16 years.

    8) Memphis went 21-13 this year, but apparently they fired Tubby Smith this week and will hire Anfernee Hardaway as his replacement. John Calipari spoiled this fanbase forever; they ran Josh Pastner out of town after he went 166-73 with the Tigers and now they got rid of Tubby, whose career record is 597-302. Tough town.

    7) Evansville fired Marty Simmons after 11 years and zero NCAA tournament bids; he went 25-9, 24-12 two and three years ago, but didn’t win Arch Madness so now he is unemployed.

    6) Arizona Cardinals signed Mike Glennon as their backup QB, which is a good thing if they’re going to start Sam Bradford at QB this fall.

    Bradford has a 34-45-1 W-L record in NFL, missing 48 games in his eight NFL seasons. He has a very bad knee that Mike Zimmer recently called “degenerative.” He is not dependable.

    5) There are 11 teams in this year’s NIT that would be favored over Syracuse on a neutral floor.

    4) Toys ‘r Us is closing its 800 stores in this country; that just sounds kind of sad.

    3) Cleveland Browns’ tackle Joe Thomas retired this week; the man played 10,363 consecutive snaps in the NFL without missing a play, which is astounding for an offensive lineman.

    2) Saw a baseball shift this week I’ve never seen before; Kris Bryant is batting for the Cubs with a man on 3rd. San Diego put three infielders on the left side of the infield, and the 1B almost halfway to 2B. If Bryant hits the ball to the right side of the infield, not sure how they get him out, unless he hits it hard right at the first baseman.

    1— Dee Gordon is playing centerfield for the Mariners this spring, at least he was until Robinson Cano strained a hamstring. Seattle’s TV guys were bragging on the Mariners’ bullpen, so we’ll see how well they do this season.
